Here’s a guest post from Without Annette‘s Francois Vincent, delayed slightly by me having my laptop stolen.
I like this post for two reasons;
a) it’s very short, and I like short things
b) I agree without it totally, and I like things that I agree with

You need to fail. If you aren’t failing, you aren’t learning. If you are doing something without failing, then you’ve learned it.
You need to push your own envelope, to perform at the edge of your abilities, to go outside of your zone of comfort. And in doing so you will fail. If you aren’t failing, you haven’t pushed yourself beyond your capabilities.
You will eat that failure. You will fail and fail and fail and you will suck it all up. Then one day, you will do it. You will have
learned and you will do it. You will explore it, sometimes failing, sometimes nailing it. And then you will be good. Enjoy it and be happy because I have some bad news.
It will be time to fail again.
